It's just an informational message from the firewall software. Given that no known exploit is known to exist for the OS in question, it's strictly the firewall tooting its horn.

Since such a message could be for a Trojan (a type of malware software), you would just deny the packet and move on.

after looking at several discussions on these forums about win32 kernel I have exactley the same problem as mommapez.As you say it maybe a trojan ignore and move on,I know mine is a trojan but my firewall will not let me ignore it, a window keeps popping up to tell me i'ts been blocked and even when I click on the box to tell it not to show this window again it still appears everytime I go onto something else,I'ts so annoying any advice to stop this would be very welcome.

It seems odd to allow pests on a machine.
